the battle is His.

Today when I woke up I didn't think anything was different, I just figured it would be another day. However, before lunch I had found out that a friend's kid had accidentally been ran over by a full trailer, another friend's dad had had a heart attack and was in the hospital, and another friend's … Continue reading the battle is His.

Singleness.

This is a post that I have been chewing on for a while. I want to start of by saying I understand that being single is not for everyone, but being married is not for everyone as well. This is one of those very vulnerable, authentic posts that I would love for you to read … Continue reading Singleness.

Keep Moving Forward

This year did not go the way I thought it would. So much has changed, and initially I thought it was all for the worse, but then that tiny voice in my head said, “No child, I will take this and make your future better than it would have been.” You see, when you get … Continue reading Keep Moving Forward

Are you grieving?

The featured image is a quote from my book, Handwriting: God's Heart, My Hand, and I wrote it before I had fully experienced freedom from grief. Over the past few weeks I have noticed many people posting things about grief such as: you will always be grieving... it just looks different, or you never get … Continue reading Are you grieving?

The hundred acre wood.

I have been chewing on this quote for a few days now. Thursday night Malea and I took Asher and Elijah to see Christopher Robin. It was such a nostalgic movie, brought the little kid in me out—wondering why my toys didn’t come to life when I was a kid—and after the movie was over, … Continue reading The hundred acre wood.

Where’s your heart?

Recently I have been thinking about how so many people bash or hate on mega churches. The ones that specifically come to mind are: Bethel in Redding, CA, Elevation in Charlotte, NC, and Hillsong -- both NYC and Australia. There are other churches that I could add to this list, but that's not my point. … Continue reading Where’s your heart?

In the Fire

Over the past week or so I have been thinking about fire. It started at Hannah's birthday party. We were all sitting out around a fire enjoying each other's company, and the fire eventually got to the point of the embers were so hot, that we could put a log on and it would begin … Continue reading In the Fire

Adulting

Yesterday I opened my Instagram and the first post I saw said something about, don't you wish there was a way to give back being an adult? And as I read that I though, "No! Why would I want to be a child again?" It then got me thinking about all of the posts I … Continue reading Adulting

Reality hits…

Well, I took mom to the airport this morning. Somehow I have been able to hold myself together. I'm sure at some point it will hit me like a load of bricks and I'll have a meltdown...and then be okay again. But, in the meantime, I am searching for a job. It's so weird for … Continue reading Reality hits…
